Vegan's Chronicles + TIME


'Blinders' is a documentary about the horse-drawn carriage industry in NYC. It's only 50 minutes long, but is quite eye-opening.

Synopsis: "Throughout the year, tourists from around the world travel to Central Park to ride in one of New Yorks legendary horse-drawn carriages. Yet the future of this industry is the subject of a highly charged debate being aired on the streets, in the press and at City Hall. As a result of three dramatic and fatal accidents since 2006 that received international media attention, the plight of the NYC carriage horses is now in the public eye more than ever before. Through original footage taken with hidden cameras and interviews with carriage drivers, veterinarians, accident witnesses, animal rights activists, politicians, tourists, residents who live near the horses and people who have rescued NYC carriage horses from slaughter, BLINDERS takes viewers behind the scenes to expose the truth behind the tradition."
